A very famous movie actor in his own words, summed up his philosophy of life. He said, “I’m going to do as I please. I don’t need anybody in the world. I did it myself.” How sad. Tragically, that is the unspoken creed of many people. They consider themselves self-made individuals who worship their supposed creator- themselves. This comes from pride and arrogance. But it is a foolish philosophy of life. We have been created by God, and we are only alive because He allows it. If we have any gifts or talents, it is only because He has bestowed them. Most importantly, our preparation for the next life is in His hands. He inspired Paul to write, “By grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, lest anyone should boast.“ We all have a philosophy of life. What’s yours?
